I agree. Thats also who I will be supporting along with Holland.

Spain is a lot of fun to watch, especially with Torres up front.

Holland is in a damn tough group though. Whoever gets out of that group is going to be tough to beat.

I'm with Holland/Netherlands, I'll say whoever wins that group will win the comp. Very tough group indeed.

C. Ronaldo is such a lame diver, ugh I cringe whenever he gets near the ball.

Italy and Germany will be strong, I think a notch above Spain and the Netherlands.

What about France? Isn't Thierry Henri(y?) still playing?

You obviously have been stuck watching his games from 2 years ago.

Btw, here is the ESPN TV schedule for Euro 2008: ESPNsoccernet - European Championship Fixtures

I just got done watching USA vs. Spain and I gotta tell you I wasn't impressed with Spain at all. Did you watch the game? What did you think? The US looked horrible as well, I couldn't believe the lack of possesion by the US in the second half and Josh Wolf is just horrible up front. With the bad play of the US, Spain didn't impress me at all.

Seemed that Spain was just using this as a warm up...but with all of their possession in the 2nd half, I can't believe they didn't score more than 1 goal. Guzan is a nice keeper...isn't Villa going to sign him?

Unfortunately, I was busy with work and couldn't catch the game today. Hope Spain peaks in the latter stages of the comp.
